Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you truly feel that someone hacked your tablet and installed an app that may be messing with the functions of the tablet, just set the tablet back to the default settings and this should take care of the problem.  Now, when you set up the tablet again, be sure to use a different log on and password so if the person who did the hack does not have the key to access it anymore.

    Uninstall all unnecessary apps from your tablet. If possible never make any financial transactions through apps. Have you seen any malfunctioning. Assuming this tab is android based, and android has a strong built-in security. For security, you can delete chat session. However, without your knowledge not possible to install any messenger apps on your tab.

    I have not heard of an app getting installed without someone give it permissions. It may have been inside another app, like a trojan. Always look at what an app is looking for permission to before you accept. If it seems unusual, do not load it.

    This seems suspect but odds are it's not what you think it is. I would do a factory reset and, like mentioned above, use a different password on it.
